Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 2:5

_ _ I ... wall of fire round — Compare Zechariah 2:4. Yet as a city needs some wall, I Jehovah will act as one of fire which none durst approach (Zechariah 9:8; Isaiah 26:1).

_ _ glory in the midst — not only a defense from foes outside, but a glory within (Isaiah 60:19; Revelation 21:23). The same combination of “glory and defense” is found in Isaiah 4:5, alluding to the pillar of cloud and fire which defended and enlightened Israel in the desert. Compare Elisha in Dothan (2 Kings 6:17). As God is to be her “glory,” so she shall be His “glory” (Isaiah 62:3).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 2:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 2:5

The glory — My presence and favour shall make her glorious.
